3 EASY WAYS TO SUPPORT LLS PTA!
Why support the LLS PTA? Every dollar that we raise goes right back into our school’s community – from supporting our teachers, providing author visits and cultural arts performances to our students, and enhancing our physical space with a new shade arbor coming soon!
Here are 3 easy ways to help raise money for the LLS PTA this fall:
1. Long Lots Logowear is now available to order at ASF and Nice Threads!
- Shop the ASF website for sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats, leggings, shorts & more! Order online and pick-up at the ASF store at 1560 Post Road in Westport
- Shop the Nice Threads website for masks and water bottles. Order online and pick-up at the Nice Threads store at 17 Kings Hwy N. in Westport
2. Keep Track of that AWESOME LOGOWEAR with Mabel’s Labels: Visit campaigns.mabelslabels.com to shop for all your labeling needs! Mabel's labels come in a variety of styles that you can use to tag your child’s clothing, water bottle, etc. Perfect for back-to-school!
3. Sign up for Amazon Smile: The same shopping experience (and prices) as Amazon, but on the smile.amazon.com website you help LLS PTA! Simply select Long Lots School PTA as your designated charity, and the PTA will receive a percentage of your purchases. Once you have selected LLS PTA as your charity on the website, you will need to search for “Amazon Smile” to activate it in the app. Make sure to always use smile.amazon.com to make your purchases count!
The Giving Tree is Long Lots PTA's annual fundraising appeal. Funds support all of the amazing programming we provide, and the PTA needs your help in supporting the school. GIVING TREE funds have been used to update classroom furniture and school grounds such as standing desks, flexible seating, iPads for instruction, board games for indoor recess, wireless microphones for the amazing auditorium and the school play.
This year we plan to use fund to improve the playground and outdoor play at LLS. Initial ideas include:
- Adding Removable Shade
- New playground structures targeted towards the older kids
- More options for winter outdoor recess
- Covered play area for quiet time
- Goal Posts for additional sports
The leaves are just beginning to fall outside, please help our Giving Tree grow today!
Thank you in advance to all of our LLS families for rallying behind our once-a-year GIVING TREE appeal. Your generous donation is tax-deductible. Please contact our VPs of Fundraising Amy Bedi and Erica Barratt with any questions.
